Pharmacist Lina Yahya opened her TEDx speech with a chilling anecdote: an 11-day-old girl afflicted by bacteria resistant to 57 types of antibiotics. Her focus was on the information epidemic's role in medication errors and its dire impact on patients of all ages. She underscored that worldwide, misuse of antibiotics claims 700,000 lives annually. Additionally, she highlighted the dangers of prolonged topical cortisone use, including obesity, osteoporosis, and diabetes—especially alarming in young patients. Lina cautioned against assuming the safety of herbal remedies, noting their potential harm to healthy individuals devoid of any ailments.
